I’ve tossed a few ideas around with Brett about what to do at the end of the year, coming up in just a few short weeks, with this blog. Keep writing daily? Keep writing but not daily? Quit all together. Switch from a blog to a vlog? That would be a huge challenge. Blog, but vlog occasionally?
Last year when I first suggested writing a blog Brett and my oldest daughter Rande, who does write a healthy eating blog, suggested I write a blog about health! I didn’t have to think about that, I just said, “No”. When Brett suggested it again this year I said “No” even more quickly. I do enjoy the results of healthy eating. But, I live with Brett who does not. If the person I live with daily is not convinced to eat healthy than why would I write a blog to try and convince the world to eat healthy?
I’m certainly glad God doesn’t feel that way about presenting salvation to people. He already knows that so many are going to say, “No”. Countless people have already said, “No”, but He still offers His salvation to everyone. Jesus even rubbed shoulders daily with His disciples here on earth and they still didn’t seem to really understand what it was all about until after His death.
Jesus has already died for us. The only step left for us is to die to self and live for Him.
Rom 6:11-14 (Philips) In the same way, look upon yourselves as dead to the appeal and power of sin but alive to God through Christ Jesus our Lord. Do not, then, allow sin to establish any power over your mortal bodies in making you give way to its lusts. Nor hand over your bodily parts to be, as it were, weapons of evil for the devil’s purpose. But, like men rescued from certain death, put yourselves in God’s hands as weapons of good for his own purposes. For sin can never be your master; you are no longer living under the law, but under grace.
